Coolant Tee, swap to metal?

I just replaced every coolant part only vehicle..except the heater core(flushed). I ordered the parts from BP parts of Utah. The problem was with the coolant tee w/bleeder. The pre-assembled hose and tee was tightened too tight on one side and the tee broke directly under the clamp.

Looked everywhere for a metal replacement for this part...NO DICE. Has anyone come up with a viable alternative to any of these plastic tees. I searched everywhere on the net and found nothing.

aluminium Coolant hose T connector

There is a top notch replacement made at the Sports Car Centre in Edmonton, Canada and it sells for $75 Canadian (approx. $57 US). Aluminium welded with Stainless bleed screw......It costs more but it will never let you down!

Hey....yeah I got the truck put back together then and all went well. The tee hasn't failed yet. I have since rebuilt the motor(thx P.T.Schram), added lift, 4.75 gears and lockers, I built a front and back bumper(back still incomplete) but, while I'm finishing up current work I'm gonna go ahead and grab one of these and put it on
